"Absolutely wonderful show! Fabulous orchestra, and soloists for such a fantastic production today-I was lucky enough to be watching as a parent with my children’s school for once! Particular favourite was The Bear and the Piano - gorgeous music."
"My 5 year old was delighted by the music at York Minister yesterday."
"Wow! This is the only way to watch the snowman now, this will be our tradition and what a spectacular place the Blackpool ballroom is, my 3 year old son absolutely loved it and even my 9 month old was captured. I can’t recommend this enough!"
"Lovely performance at York Minster last night. This tour is so under rated. Loved the live orchestra playing Christmas tunes."
"Just finished watching The Snowman at The Tower Ballroom Blackpool. We’ve really enjoyed it. I’ve seen the Snowman many times but seeing it whilst listening to a live orchestra was so magical. A big thumbs up from us."
"Christmas has now arrived. What a stunning afternoon spent at Blackpool Tower Ballroom watching The Snowman and The Bear and the Piano. Sensational musicians, a truly breathtaking score composed by Daniel Whibley and the cutest dancing Snowman in the world.... if you haven’t seen it already, get your tickets NOW!"
"A fabulous show at Blackpool Tower today. A brilliant orchestra. Very magical just before Christmas,
Just some of the comments and reviews we have received from our
2014, 2015 and 2016 tours...
"What an amazing performance. The orchestra were just fantastic - and it was so magical to share it with my daughter. She loved it too. Cried my eyes out with happy tears the whole way through!"
"Thank you so much for a great family entertainment; we don't do pantos any more because we're sick of the lewdness and innuendo with which most of them seem to be laced. Tonight was sheer brilliance. Thanks again."
"Hi! We've just been to Chester cathedral to see your performance of the snowman. I think it has to be one of the best and most magical events we have ever watched. Our eldest daughter is autistic and wheelchair bound and she was captivated. Little one loved it, loved all the instruments you introduced in the orchestra and she danced all the way through the film. Thank you, it was fantastic. We will definitely be booking for next year!"
"The performance was magical. Thank you! Very professional in every way - excellent sound quality.
A fabulous performance all round - thank you."
"Magical venue, brilliant musicians and incredibly talented choristers all made for a very special evening."
"Just to say how hugely our party enjoyed The Snowman and accompanying presentation in the Victoria Hall tonight. We had two of our grown-up children, two daughters-in-law, and 6 of our 13 grandchildren aged 9 down to 3 with us, who all absolutely loved it."
"Awesome! Thank you so much for putting on such a wonderful performance. It was a joy to be able to share it
with my son who was enthralled."
"The whole experience was a music box of delights. The boy singing Walking in the Air was beautiful.
The children were mesmerised by the pieces."
"Very informative - but in a light 'attractive' way - a lovely first glance at an orchestra. Just the right length of time to keep interest. The film was as moving as ever. Live music added a very special touch."
It was like a sparkle of magic in our lives Orchestra were amazing, talented and inspiring. Went yesterday was absolutely brilliant, thank you!! We thought the musicians were AMAZING!
"Filled me with Christmas spirit. I really liked the part where the orchestra introduced themselves so you could see how the music was made."

"Brilliant. The music created a range of moods and stirred different emotions in the children."
"Fabulous music and really engaging with visual aids and a fabulous snowman! Loved the introduction to the orchestra."
"The stylistic quality was incredible! Very impressive to hear a live performance."
"It was suitable for all ages. Lots of information given about instruments, and then played to help children recognise. Important cultural experience."
"Most memorable moment was watching the children moving spontaneously and reacting to the music."
Some of the comments received from our younger audience....
"It was the best thing ever and it made my day. I can't believe I saw a real orchestra with my own eyes.
It was like an angel singing in the clouds."
"To the people that did the music: thank you so much - it was snowman tastic. The singers were exulent you all were really good. You should be very proud of yourselfs. The selest was really good and the drummer was funny, also the gargantuan harp. Oh I almost forgot the person that talked at the start. Nice ryming!"
"The most amazing concert ever. Everyone was enjoying it, even the orchestra. You could tell because every single person had a big smile on their face!"
"I thought that it was brilliant and amazing. The snowman film was fantastic it was the best i have seen. It was exiting."
"I liked the conductor who led all the musicians and kept in time with the film, all the teamwork, the talented musicians, all the different sounds and instruments."
"Brilliant Snowman show! I liked how the conductor led the team, and how much pressure he would have had on him, but he was brilliant."
"I loved every single bit. It's good that some of you played two instruments. I liked that you all played at the
same time and it wasn't boring."
